u.s. official has determined the target poses a, quote, iminnocent threat of violent attack and clear evidence of an attack is not required. step two, capture must be, quote, infeasible. and step three, the strike must be conducted according to, quote, laws of war principles. but this isn't a just in case guideline. the targeted killings of u.s. citizens have already happened. september 2011, two were killed in yemen. both were u.s. citizens. yes, it's believed al allaki wa connected to the christmas day bomber but he was never charged with a crime. here's how the doj and the white house defend the kill list. >> our concern is to keep the american people safe but in a way that's consistent with our laws and consistent with our values. >> we conduct those strikes because they're necessary to mitigate ongoing actual threats, to stop plots, prevent future attacks and save american lives. the strikes are legal, they're ethical and wise. >> critics say this administration is putting the constitutional rights of american citizens in jeopardy and disregarding federal law that crimi
crumbling of the soviet union. weapons of mass destruction were a concern and u.s. officials were hard at work around the globe trying to prevent regional tensions and an mos if is from turning in to full-scale wars and ominously, the united states about to face an upsurge in terrorist attacks to claim hundreds of american lives in lebanon including a 49-year-old cia officer named bob ames killed in a brief visit to our embassy in beirut and who at the time was my boss at cia. during my 25-year career at cia, i watched up close and participated in history being made in far off corners of the world. as cia fulfilled the critical intelligence roles, collecting intelligence, uncovering secrets, identifying threats, partnering with foreign intelligence and security agencies, carrying out covert action and attempting to forecast events yet to happen, all in an effort to protect our people and to strengthen america's national security. and throughout my career, i had the great fortune to experience firsthand and to witness what it means to be a cia officer. such as an analyst, who has t
despite the substantial progress made against them still seek to carry out deadly strikes strikes. u.s. computer networks are under daily attack by nation states. international criminal organizations, sub national groups and individual hackers. and regimes in teheran and po pyongyang remain bent on delivery systems rather than fulfilling international obligations or even meeting the basic needs of their people. yes, the cia's mission as important to our nation's security today as any time in our nation's history. in carrying out the mission, the men and women of the cia frequently asked to undertake challenging, perilous and, yes, controversial actions on behalf of the american people. the cia is not immune from the scrutiny of the efforts and i welcome a discussion of cia's past and current activities. if i am confirmed one of the highest priorities would be the committ committee's lengthy report of interrogation with now banned interrogation techniques. i have read the findings and executive summary of the 6,000 page report which raises a number of very serious issues. given the grav
report while not blockbuster helped the markets soar. the u.s. created 365,000 jobs in january. no news is good news for wall street 'revisions upward of november and december reports and now unemployment rate did rise to 7.9% and this on the heels of that surprise news earlier in the week when the gdp fell for the last quarter of 2012. to discuss all of these things, economic, our dynamic duo of bernstein and morisi. starting with you, peter. so the net game of 157,000 jobs, the rate ticked up to 7.9% from 7.8%. real unemployment at 14.4%. in the words of ed koch, how'm i doing? how's our economy doing right now? >> well, it could be doing a lot better but it's not falling apart. i discount that fourth quarter gdp number. we're expanding but not as much as we like. >> jared, you are not feeling well but here and most important. thank you so much for making it here today because it's jobs report friday and a holiday for you. >> well, i'm feeling better just talking about the jobs day. >> there you go. >> makes my blood race. >> turn that frown upside down. >> two numbers jumped out at m
him at the height of the campaign and said obama is going to win and the u.s. starts to adjust for that. between him winning a race that netanyahu never thought he was going to win and missing no opportunity and netanyahu himself ending up in sort of a messy situation, i think that's interesting and it's an interesting context to the visit. >> mitt romney promised he would make israel his first. >> his first. i want to quickly mention and talk about the hagel confirmation hearings, i'm interested to watch, he will make it through the committee and get confirmed, but how many republicans are going to vote for him? right now only two of 45 are on the record saying they are yes votes. probably about 20 have not said anything. my concern was we know there is not going to be a filibuster. mccain and a few others said no filibuster. that's healthy for the process, but this normalizes bad ap sigz party behavior. if they they treat this as a party line vote, they vote no. i don't want cabinet members to be party line votes. the white house's party controls the senate and what about the
. >> that is the same message we heard last night to bring manufacturing jobs back to the u.s. and trade the workers for the positions. the road trip itself matches the it deserves a vote theme. instead of fighting congress himself, he is trying to enlist the country and pressure them to at least vote on the big issues. job creation, and gun control. looking at you, speaker boehner. we can't go off the coverage. thanks for being here. >> my pleasure. >> looking back at this speech, i guess in the run up to state of the unions, we say they talk for an hour and nobody remembers anything they say. >> sometimes for a lot more than an hour. >> bill clinton is not there anymore. >> not mentioning names. >> did you hear anything that will stand the test of time? we might be talking about 10 or 20 years from now? >> anybody who remembers the speech will remember they deserve a vote. both the benefit and the risk to a president in using a line like that. 1941, franklin roosevelt gave an address to congress, state of the union in which it was interesting. he denounced a lot of opponents saying accusers of hit
and also the author of "the u.s. senate." welcome. >> thank you. >> on this sleepy siesta day, i want you to try to get obama's mind back on us. if you remember back in the presidential debates he sort of dropped a bomb when he said the sequester will not happen. a couple of his advisers went back and said, well, i think what he meant was, it should not happen. he also tried to shake off the proposal something that congress believed got four pinocchios. this came from the white house. and now according to politico, obama is not really reaching out to senate republicans to try and get anything done. my question to you is the sequester that obama actually wants because he thinks republicans will get the blames for the cuts? or this just a gamble that he didn't think was going to go all the way and as far as it has? >> well, i think the president has come to the conclusion that it's pretty hard to reach a deal right now. it appears that republican, both in the house and in the senate, are really determined to go through with the sequester. so he sees somewhat of a few ti futility at this poi
sadly that the u.s. has gotten into what i called this permanently dysfunctional equilibrium. there was no way to run the country and i think it's pathetic. >> matt miller, thanks as aulsz. up next, one of the places the cuts could have an impact. they could weaken background checks as lawmakers were trying to toughen them up. joe biden said buy a gun as the cycle rolls on for wednesday february 20th.

in her community. outside of her community going on to other countries, ultimately winding up in the u.s. because the game does in fact take you not just to over there, but also into the u.s. she is taking you on this journey and solving problems and taking women from a crush to opportunity. >> who are is the project aimed at. is it for teenage gamer or trying to get affluent social activists to increase awareness >> sure. so our organization games for change, our mission is improving social impact through the use of digital games. this game, half the sky movement the game, is really at its core about taking this message of how do you use a platform such as facebook to drive social action and positive change? how do you feel good playing a game? these are really games for goods. you want people to share their progress of what they're doing in the game. nick kristoff and cheryl, the authors of the book "half the sky" this is the newest installment of their movement. >> michelle, quickly, inside the game you can make donations, real world donations. so it's not just a game but you can actu
. chris kyle did five combat tours in iraq, known as the deadliest sniper in u.s. history, an advocate for veterans mental health. he and a friend were shot and killed in texas. another vet who it appears they were trying to help through mental illness is in custody. last year, kyle spoke about the dedication to former service members. >> there were several different times we thought that this might be it. but that's what you signed up and you basically wrote a blank check up to the price of your life that you're willing to get for the country and nut that situation then you just fight as hard as you can and hopefully you come out but if you don't then you're dying in honor of your country, especially for your brothers on the right and left of you. whole grain, multigrain cheerios! mom, are those my jeans? [ female announcer ] people who choose more whole grain tend to weigh less than those who don't. multigrain cheerios that's not much, you think. except it's 2% every year. go to e-trade and find out how much our advice and guidance costs. spoiler alert: it's low. it's guidance on you
to quote/unquote outrageous u.s. hostilities. do you think that's the case or merely kim jung un's way of announcing himself on the president's state of the union of the day? >> this is an in your face type of explosion because they're doing it at a very interesting time. there is a new prime minister in japan. there's a new south korea president, a new president of china and frankly the day before the state of the union of the president of the united states taking over the second term. look. they are not there yet and have a distance to go before they'll be able to actually miniaturize a nuclear warhead and mate it to a missile with a missile to reach out to the united states but this is a dangerous situation. and the real key to this is china. they have to -- they're necessary in order to ratchet in an influencing north korea from not building another bomb, not doing proliferation and hopefully stopping them from having nuclear capability and has to be our goal but i think the united states has to be begin to approach this not just as north korea but how does removing forces in to th
in u.s. history. he was number two on the fbi's most wanted list, behind only osama bin laden, and he remained on the lam for 16 years until he was finally captured in june of 2011, living with his girlfriend in a rent-controlled apartment in santa monica, california. joining us is dick lehrer who broke the story with the boston fbi as a reporter for "the boston globe," one of the formost experts, and author of a book, follow up to "black mass" which will be a movie starring johnny depp as whitey. thanks for being here, dick. i guess reading this book, one thing that jumps out at me, you have the whole story established in black mass about the aligns with the fbi and whitey and how the fbi basically let whitey become this notorious crime boss. but this is also a story about the failure of the political system over decades. you have whitey in federal prison for bank robbery in the late '50s, early '60s and there's the speaker of the house of the u.s. representatives, john mccormick, a guy from south boston. robert drinen, a congressman from massachusetts in the '70s as the dean of the
in terms of u.s. resources, blood and treasure, intelligence, predators that we took away from the effort in afghanistan. so, i actually think if you look at hagel's record, setting aside the confirmation hearing, the guy's pretty on target. >> part of the problem is although there was reservations about iraq he did end up voting for that war and then oppose the surge which is broadly been seen as having been successful and sort of in the end got it wrong on both counts but turning to the sequester as we mentioned the top of the show, the president is in virginia today and hampton rhodes at a shipyard and interesting the political dynamic playing out there locally in virginia. a trio of virginia representatives that represent that hampton rhodes region have been very against the sequester, really trying to figure out to avoid the cuts recognizing how damaging it will be to their regions and district. are we going to see more of that as more members of congress and republican members in particular recognize how much these cuts will impact their district specifically? >> yeah. i mean, i thi
immigrant five or six years ago as u.s. attorney and moving more by 2016 on immigration and medicaid this week, expansion. staying seven other republican governors done the same thing. what we have seen in the past is republicans will overlook past if they like you and want to be behind you. tea party republicans nominated romney and then -- >> okay. >> we shall see how much they get over this. the war for the soul of the gop rages on. this snub of the most popular republican on all the land is horribly dumb and comes down to what are you going to be -- what's the problem? is the problem the policies or the marketing? is it the pizza or is it the box? chris christie gone away on immigration, on gun control and it says to me that they think the problem is the marketing. it is the box. not the pizza. and when you have a party that's on the wrong side of national polling, on gun control, immigration, on marriage equality, tax fairness, saying that it's the box, it's the messaging, not the policies, strikes me as just sort of horribly dumb. can you not read? >> will he be okay in 2016? >
the number of blacks under 22 killed by guns was more than triple the number of u.s. soldiers killed in afghanistan. the number of plaque children killed by gunfire since 1979 is over 13 times more than the number of blacks lynched between 1882 and 1968. and since 1969 homicides involving firearms have been the leading cause of death for black males age 15 to 19. that is the leading cause of hopelessness and nihilism and morbidity we see in our young black men who feel themselves one step away from the grave every day. perhaps more tragically, most homicides are intraracial. the vast majority of killers of blacks are blacks. we're killing each other every day. no community is more in deed of gun control, is more in need of rescue from america's gun epidemic than black people, and we know it. we're extremely in favor of gun control. a recent
in the system. but in the u.s., we realize and some of it appears in the manifesto and realize that's not really going on. there's a lot of people who see injustice and there's something deeply wrong with an individual like this and, in fact, in his manifesto he acknowledges that he's basically given up on self preservation. felt like he's already dead. that he died years ago and that now he's lashing back at people he feels have persecuted him. we see very similar themes with suicide terrorists but the strange thing is we haven't similarly recognized that just because they spout rhetoric about injustices and waging war that's not a true motive also. >> you also write that the differences between mass killers and suicide terrorists lie in how they're shaped by cultural forces and which destructive behaviors they seek to copy. what sort of cultural forces are you talking about and is there something about american culture that has led to this situation of mass shootings? >> in general, there's different forces. there's pop gran da, terrorist propaganda and instructs suicide bombers and other suic
relations called reforming u.s. drone strike policies finds, quote, far less collateral damage from drones than other weapons platforms. it quotes the bureau of investigative journalism, a british nonprofit, which found in the pakistan drone strikes, 23% of those killed were civilians and in yemen only 8%. approximately 800 civilians killed since 2004 are far too many, but the afghanistan war according to the u.n. left well over 13,000 civilians dead and the iraq war left more than 100,000
,000. with only $11,000 due up front. that's a pittance for a murder trial here in the u.s. the judge ruled he is not a flight risk and not a doing tore the public. but he said the state's case isn't water tight and blamed former lead detective of possibly contaminating the crime scene. both sides will be back in court june 4th. we start with nbc's michelle kosinski who was inside the courtroom. >> reporter: this is an emotional week with the world watching, culminating finally in the ruling being read and seeing oscar pistorius break down, sobbing, shaking and his family hugging and praying in relief. you might say it's fully expected. talking about this for days now. but this judge kept everyone guessing. the ruling lasted two hours. in it, he criticized prosecutors saying that their witness, this chief police investigator, presented flawed evidence, made incorrect statements, should have done more work but he said that doesn't mean that the state's case isn't strong. next, he hit pistorius saying that the judge had problems with his account of what happened that morning. saying if pistorius
of the 70,000 structurally deficient bridges in the u.s. are worth a few laughs but it's a serious problem, especially trying to go over them and the president proposed a program to spend $50 billion to improve the roads and infrastructure. >> so today i'm accelerating that effort with regional teams to focus on the unique needs you have in various parts of the country, helping the pacific northwest. northeast corridor move faster on high-speed rail service. >> next guest says that proposal does not go far enough to help young and old and says the focus should be on public transportation because for $1 billion invested in public transportation, we get 36,000 jobs. money and public transportation equals jobs. in the guest spot today, we welcome back the president of the center for social encollusion, miley wiley. president, i want to talk a little bit about the defacto segregation of the way that public transportation is structured and differently in different cities. in new york, manhattan is very well served by buses and subway trains and further out in to the but rougs and then further o
than human warfare is untrue. a recent report from the council on foreign relations called reforming u.s. drone strike policies finds, quote, far less collateral damage from drones than other weapons platforms. it quotes the bureau of investigative journalism, a british nonprofit, which found in the pakistan drone strikes, 23% of those killed were civilians and in yemen only 8%. approximately 800 civilians killed since 2004 are far too many, but the afghanistan war according to the u.n. left well over 13,000 civilians dead and the iraq war left more than 100,000 civilians dead. i understand the fears associated with robotic warfare, but it makes more sense to be anti-war than to be anti-drone. the drone program is a huge asset just as it has made huge mistakes. it has significantly degrade the capabilities of al qaeda but if we are intentionally killing people running to victims of strikes or attending their funerals, then those are war crimes. but i sense some in this nation are getting a little soft and forgetful when they defend the civil liberties of al qaeda members who are working
